Storyline

The teacher is Nira (Sarit Larry), a woman with a warm professional manner and pleasant, ordinary middle-class life. She has a son in the army, a daughter in high school and a devoted husband (Lior Raz) with a decent government job. As a hobby - or perhaps as a vehicle for unexpressed ambitions and frustrated desires - she attends a poetry workshop with other amateur versifiers. Then one day she witnesses a startling act of creation. One of her pupils, a cherubic, sleepy-eyed boy named Yoav (Avi Shnaidman), is being picked up at the end of the school day. "I have a poem," he announces and recites a brief, elliptical love lyric, pacing back and forth as his nanny writes his words in a notebook. Nira is startled and intrigued, and the evolution of her interest in Yoav drives the film's suspenseful, unnerving, bizarre and strangely believable plot.

Notable and different, if not enjoyable
27 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

An odd exploration of art and artist, The Kindergarten Teacher's most notable contribution may be its camerawork...which is almost a character in and of itself. The plot lags, the characters perplex, but the questions persist. It is not a flawless film, but it sure is interesting. And hard not to watch.
